I'm no poet,
just a man,
a man like other men,
who dared to write.
Oh I rhyme these words,
create a little rhythm,
but I also fix my car.
I'm no mechanic!

Don't have a mechanic degree.
My degree is in design,
but I'm no designer either.
I work as a distribution manager,
I manage,
but neither am I a manager.
I took the job,
I need the job,
I do my best,

Don't work,
we don't eat.
Don't write,
I'd die of boredom.
Don't live,
we'd be dead.
My words would be dead,
I'm just a man,
not even doing the best I can.

I loaf a lot,
play too much,
don't work enough.
I'm just another man,
captured here,
barely surviving.
Facing up is hard,
but it's a start.

Where to now?
Habits are hard to break,
just as life is at times,
hard to take!

From the Heart of an Artist Quiet Storm by Gwendolyn Thomas Gath

Perhaps "..Quiet Storm" will help rekindle old flames buried and long forgotten or express the love so deeply locked inside of your soul longing to be released. Regardles..
